In Hollywood, long marriages are like endangered species.
That whole 'til death do us part bit just doesn't quite stick there. Of course this doesn't bode well for newly engaged lovebirds Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.
But all hope is not lost for the pair. A few -- and I do mean a few -- superstar couples have gone the distance. So it's possible Miley and Liam can beat the odds. Their best bet? Take cues from the celeb who have managed to make it last more than six months.
Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick Wed for 15 years, they always keep it real. "You have good days, you have decent days, and you have bad days. That's a marriage," the actress has said.
Faith Hill & Tim McGraw The couple that plays together, stays together. The country duo, married 15 years, love performing with one another. "I can't imagine it getting any better," McGraw has said. "Aside from being able to do something I love for a living, I've got the best wife in the world."
David & Victoria Beckham Twelve years after saying 'I do,' they've keep the lust alive. "He was sitting at the end of the bed, and he had no clothes on whatsoever," Victoria once recalled. "I was getting out of the shower, and I just stood there looking at him. He was all tan. Has all those tattoos, which I love. Hadn't done his hair. He just naturally looks good all the time."
Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara Better known as Ben Stiller's parents, the duo have been together for 57 years. Clearly humor has been the key to lasting love for the 1960s comedy team.
Denzel Washington & Paulette Twenty-eight years in and Denzel has the secret to wedded bliss totally figured out: "Do what your wife tells you and keep your mouth shut."
Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson Whenever they hit the red carpet, the stars are always giggling. With 24 years behind them, they still clearly have a lot of fun together.
Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick After 24 years, the stars are still seriously smitten. "Someone was watching over me when I picked Kevin, because I couldn't have been that smart," Sedgwick has said of her man.
Celine Dion & Rene Angelil They met when she was just a teen and he was her manager for years before the romance begin. Looks like working so closely together has bonded this pair of 17 years.
Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck Showing your appreciation to each other is key. "We both know we couldn't do what we do without each other," the actress has said of her seven-year union.
Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith Focusing on their kids keeps their 15-year marriage strong. "We make the effort to always put the family first," Jada has said. "Being there for each other and being present with our kids is the most important thing. I take being a parent very seriously."
